The GOP in a Nutshell: It's All About Perception


Now that we have come to the end of a decade, it's very important to reflect back as we move forward into the era of Obama.

It occurred to me while watching my favorite GOP strategist Kevin Madden talking about Obama's response to the NW 253 attempted terrorist attack, that he unintentionally (perhaps) let it slip a little insight into what the modern GOP is really about.

It's all about PERCEPTION.
The perception of wealth. <--- FORECLOSURE CRISIS. MADOFF. ECONOMIC CRISIS WRIT LARGE.

The perception of security. <--- Except from the weather.

The perception of toughness. <--- Waterboarding is all the rage except torture doesn't actually work.

The perception of patriotism. <--- Covert CIA agents who specialize in monitoring black market nukes are fair game, especially if they are Democrats.

The perception of toughness. <--- Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran. And Bring 'em on.

The perception of intelligence. <--- Sarah Palin.

The perception of recovery. <--- See Hurrican Katrina photo above. THE PERCEPTION OF COMPETENCE INSTEAD OF ACTUAL COMPETENCE.
